Linking up today with Erika and many more here for What’s Up Wednesday!
What We’re eating
I am on Spring Break this week, but I have been doing some cooking!
I made this small charcuterie platter before dinner.
Dinner was this wonderful salad of spinach, red onion, cheddar, green apple, and homemade dressing and grilled chicken and hasselback potatoes.
Another night was copycat Alice Springs chicken from Outback and the same-ish potatoes.
Caprese sandwiches have been a recent thing I have tried and they are delish. I added chicken for Tom’s.
I am ready to have someone else cook for me soon!
What I’m reminiscing about
I’m always loving the memories that pop up on Facebook.
This was when my boys academic team won big. It was so fun to watch them do this together. They are on the right. They used to look so, so identical, and as the years go on they look more and more different.
What I’m loving
The trees started blooming and they are so pretty! It seemed to happen all of a sudden.
We have had some gorgeous days. We do have some cold snaps but I feel like those make me appreciate the warmer days even more!
What I’ve been up to
I have been finishing up Easter baskets and shopping to refresh my patio and deck. I have decided to call my upper one my deck and my lower one my patio. I know you were all on the edge of your seats about that decision.
I went in World Market. It is such a cool store. I also have gone to Hobby Lobby, Home Goods, and TJ Maxx. I love having the time to leisurely peruse these stores on a weekday.
What I’m dreading
I am dreading trying to teach in a mask. I hate the mask. I know it’s necessary, but I talk a lot to teach Spanish. I am going to have to figure this out. My favorite masks are Pomchies brand, so I do plan to wear those.
What I’m working on
In addition to doing some spring cleaning and sprucing of my outdoor spaces, I am working on a few more things to be ready to return to school April 5.
What I’m watching
I can’t find much I want to watch on any of the streaming services. I am watching Bravo shows and that’s about it.
What I’m reading
I just finished this and it is cute but a bit cheesy. It makes a good summer read!
I just started this and I am only about 60 pages in but I like it so far. I am interested to see what will happen.
What I’m listening to
I may like this podcast that makes fun of my Bravo shows even more than the shows themselves!
What I’m wearing
I wore these fun pants to work last week.I have several pairs of printed palazzo pants that I wear with solid color tops.
I am also trying to wear my long sleeve spring tops before it gets too hot to wear long sleeves. I love this old tie-dye that is Chaps brand from Kohl’s.
What I’m doing this weekend
My kids are coming home from college! They have a four day weekend and I am sure they will have homework, but I am hoping they have time to do a couple of things in addition to celebrating Easter. I need to plan my menu and order the food before it’s too late.
Also, I’m sure I won’t sleep great Sunday night with back to school jitters! In April! Crazy, but exciting, too!
What’s up with you this Wednesday?
